    It's a fun fact that actor Forest Whitaker traces his roots to the Igbo tribe, but that belongs in another film. Re-emerging speaks for itself as an uplifting portrait of an exuberant subculture that doesn't just practice its faith — it revels in it.

    In the face of the authenticity of Shmuel's faith, the evidence for or against the Judaic heritage of the Igbo is beside the point.

    Although diffuse at times, this documentary delivers a vibrant portrait of a fascinating subculture.

    “Re-emerging” can be pedestrian as filmmaking, though it remains interesting as long as it remains in Nigeria.
